small quilt

Thank you so much for showering all the love and kind words on our friends' quilt. I'm so glad you like it (: u :)
This week I’ve been working on a baby quilt to send to Japan through Quilter’s newsletter.

Wide eyed innocence of little boys and girls in this fabric is so sweet. And the playful puppy and kitten are just as adorable.

To keep with the subtlety of this fabric I made up a simple block and used soothing colors and prints. Then added linen for sashing. I mostly quilted it with stitch in the ditch.

These are the measurements I used to cut pieces for the block.

~Focus fabric is 'pipsqueeks' by Benatrex, probably an old line and the backing is something I had with me for a long time.
~This one measures 37.5” square.

I hope this small quilt brings comfort to someone who’s been through so much.
A bunch of thanks to Quilter’s newsletter for organizing ”Quilts for Japan”.

Have a Happy Easter! (='v'=)

Well Pratima, you've done it again,
your charming quilt for a young child is just wonderful. The Trip around the World is awesome. I have enough odds and ends of fabric for one but I don't have the patients.
Thanks for the comment on my blog. How does Gertrude sound for the BB? Gertie or Trudy, hmmm. Pam
